EDUCATION IMPROVES LIVES-TUTORS NEEDED….The Dominican Learning Center has a huge need for volunteer tutors in reading, writing or mathematics at the Dominican Learning Center, housed at Corpus Christi Church at 1111 E. Stewart Ave.  Our adult students want to earn GED equivalencies in order to get a job, improve their lives, and help their children with school work. We are in need of volunteers who can tutor ONE student, ONE hour a week from September through June. No teaching experience is necessary.  At a FREE Saturday morning Tutor Training Workshop, you will learn the skills and receive the materials needed to successfully tutor in this ONE-TO-ONE environment.  Students are tested before being assigned and books are provided.  Sr. Shawn Fitzpatrick, Director of the Dominican Learning Center, welcomes your call at (614) 444-7330.

Every Sunday dedicated volunteers work Bingo.  The monies raised from bingo help support our school and parish.  This past year, Bingo made $76,759.85.  This is a 75% increase from the year before!  This is by far our largest fundraiser of the year.  However, we are in need of more dedicated volunteers to keep bingo running.  The crowds are growing, but our volunteers are not.  We are in need of people to volunteer once a month on a regular basis.  There is no smoking in the gymnasium.  Come and get involved, meet new people, and help support your parish through your gift of time.  To get involved please call the parish office at 445-9668.
